Rick Ross has cancelled two concerts in Greensboro and Charlotte on Friday and Saturday after receiving death threats from a gang named the Gangster Disciples. Meek Mill, Wale and Machine Gun Kelly were also set to perform at the high profile concerts, though a show set for Sunday evening (December 9, 2012) in Nashville remains on schedule.

Local news outlet WCNC say the cancellation relates to threats from the Gangster Disciples gang, who have a beef with Ross. They put out a YouTube video warning the rapper to stay out of Charlotte, with Live Nation complying and offering refunds for the show. Paul Scott, a minister from Durham who is also a hip hop journalist, said, "I think fans should be concerned. I think the parents should be concerned because you never know. Hip hop does not represent the real street. The commercial Hip Hop that Rick Ross promotes represents Wall Street and Wall Street cares nothing about the loss of human life if they can make a dollar." Dean Cole, a friend of Ross and also the Assistant Programming Director for Power 98 Radio, said he didn't believe that fans would have had anything to worry about and that one day Ross and the Disciples would work out their problems. Charlotte-Mecklenburgh Police released a statement on Wednesday (before the cancellation) saying officers would remain vigilant to ensure to utmost safety.

Rick Ross released his latest album God Forgives, I Don't in July 2013, to mostly positive reviews from critics.
